Soon you'll be able to tell Alexa (Amazon's Echo) to start your FFE (and C-Max, and Fusion): ... ce=twitter

Has anyone got this working successfully with two cars?

We have a Focus BEV and C-MAX PHEV in our MyFord Mobile account. We've also successfully gotten the skill setup in Alexa. The problem is how do we tell 'her' which car we're referring to? It seems to depend on the position of the moon in the sky as to which car our commands refer to. Sometimes it's the Focus, sometimes the C-MAX.

I reported the problem via Amazon's feedback options, but they just keep replying back saying to possibly use the name of each car to differentiate them, but when we try that, Alexa hasn't got a freakin' clue as to what we're asking.

Basically, the integration is useless currently if you own two or more cars, since you can't be sure which car will get remote started, locked, or unlocked.
